The Invisible Man

This issue of the New Yorker, for what it’s worth, has a nice little video of Gay Talese in his compound, or wine cellar office. Talese, as you may or may not know, is the author of what was voted the best magazine article of all time: “Frank Sinatra Has a Cold,” a forerunner of the New Journalism practiced by such writers as Norman Mailer, Truman Capote, Tom Wolfe, and Hunter S. Thompson (who spun off his own distinct brand, gonzo journalism).
